to know who changed these talking points, and here with more on that, the author of the secrets of the fbi, chief washington correspondent for newsmax.com ronald kessler is back along with the former assistant secretary of defense, bing west is here with us as well. this is very frustrating to me because i feel we've been lied to. here we have this event happen, almost instantaneously petraeus knows what happened. the libyan president told us within a day what had happened. people on the ground told us what had happened. the state department watched in real-time. five days after, susan rice didn't know what happened and two weeks later the president couldn't say definitively it was a terrorist attack. is that plausible? >> shawn, there's no reason to have the argument in a way because every day the president is given a daily brief by the cia, so all one has to do in one of these intelligence committees is say well, let me see the brief that the president received on those days. it's either going to be in there or it's not. the problem when the white house doesn't want to even reveal what w

member of the senate judiciary committee, chuck grassley n a letter to the attorney general and the fbi director is asking for a detailed briefing before the end of next week on the legal authorities obtained to monitor the former cia director's e-mail by the fbi as well as the legal analysis that allowed them to conclude that they did not need to notify congress, nor the white house of this ongoing investigation with national security implications, jon. jon: katherineer ridge in washington, thank you. jenna: now we turn to afghanistan where nearly 70,000 u.s. troops continue to fight today. afghan president hamid karzai is accusing the u.s. of violating an agreement on transferring detainees. this comes as leaders in kabul oppose offering immunity to american forces after that 2014 withdrawal deadline. this is a key sticking point in negotiations with the u.s., and we saw a similar debate emerge as we were withdrawing or drawing down in iraq. conor powell is live in kabul with more. >> reporter: well, jenna, this is just the latest in a long line of disputes between president karzai an

holder who certainly his attorney general would have been aware of what the f.b.i. was doing and i was told no and that it was this person's understanding that holder quite specifically understood how important it was not to let word of this out. not to inform the white house, to keep it at the justice department within proper channels. so i was given a quite specific answer to the question congressman rogers posed but it's a question people are going to want more detail on and they'll want to have people say maybe even on the record there was no leak to the white house. >> rose: there's also this question: did the c.i.a. director petraeus not want to resign and then only decided that he should resign after it became public? >> that's a very interesting part of this story and, again, i want to be honest with your viewers, i don't know the answer. it is a fact that after he was informed that this investigation was going on he did not resign that he waited until he was confronted, in effect, by his nominal superior, the director of national intelligence james clapper who called anymo
. the justice department and the pentagon and the fbi. the republican chairman of the house intelligence committee says, quote, it gives a new explanation that differs from information provided from testimony. and now they are demanding an immediate plan nation from clapper. we heard from a leading democrat who said the changes were made to protect the classification. they were not subject to any spin by the whoit house or ambassador to the u.n. it is high time we returned our focus to where it should have been all along. this new time line does not address another sig can't -- significant inconsistency. diplomatic agents were evacuated from the consulate to the airbase in germany. by september 14th, two days before ambassador rice's controversial sunday appearances, fbi agents learned from the consulate agents that there was no demonstration. this single data point that there was no demonstration gutted the anti-islam video theory. fox news asked the director of national intelligence why this information was apparently not included in the talking points, and there was no immediate respo

was withholding judgment whether the fbi and the justice department were correct in not informing him over these many months that the cia director at the time, david petraeus, was already under investigation. we'll have a lot more to dissect on that as well. i want to go to capitol hill now. dana bash is standing by. here's what john mccain said earlier in the day, because i know we're already getting reaction to the president's very angry statement going after mccain and lindsey graham on their insistence they'll do whatever they can to block susan rice from potentially becoming the next secretary of state. here is what mccain said earlier. >> i've said for days, weeks that -- >> you said you haven't gott gotten -- >> it is a cover-up or gross incompeten incompetence, one of the two. can't be anything else. maybe a combination of both. the president of the united states didn't even tell the truth. >> all right, strong words. are you getting reaction on the hill to what we heard from the president, dana? >> i am. i'm getting -- first of all, let me clarify, wolf that was john mccain yester

classified and it is still part of the ongoing fbi investigation. but i think that is the feeling within the intelligence community that at least if they can get the public to see part of this, too, they are going to understand just how sort of chaotic and difficult it was to figure out very quickly certainly within 24 hours what exactly had happened. so they were, you know, their initial information on this according to sources of mine was coming in from people who were on the ground, who were interviewed right away, some media accounts, all of those different threads coming together as barbara mentioned. but the video really apparently isn't of great quality. some hits in it, a very grainy image, so it's difficult to say exactly what they can tell from it. >> it will be riveting tomorrow when general petraeus gives his evidence. he was the boss of the cia when this all kicked off and although he's been embroiled in this scandal, many will say what he says tomorrow and the outcome of this inquiry is going to be a lot more important than what he did in a bedroom. so thank you both very m
